Matt Baerlocher, PT, DPT

Matt was born and raised on a farm in small-town north central Idaho. Growing up he was a 3-sport athlete who went on to play baseball at Walla Walla Community College and then Division-1 baseball at South Dakota State University. It was at South Dakota State University that he developed a passion for strength and performance-related training strategies. This lead him to obtaining his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Idaho State University in 2013. He has since focused his continuing education on advanced athletic performance and innovative manual therapy techniques in an effort to provide a higher quality of physical therapy care for all populations. Matt is a relentless learner, who desires to continually stay ahead of the curve in an effort to exceed all expectations in terms of the care he provides. Dr. Matt is married to his beautiful wife Rachelle. They have one child, a black lab named Grizwald.
